Paua shell necklace complete

Paua Shell Necklace
This is not the best of backgrounds to show the beauty of the colors, but beige was the only color I could use. Otherwise, the shell would have a glare. The black beads made a huge improvement.

My Current Project!!

I couldn't wait until the mid-semester break to work on some designs. I've decided to make a beaded band for the pendant I was previously working on. This is a versatile pendant. It can be used for the center of a bracelet, earrings, or necklace. I enjoy beading. I find it a relaxing and mindless (for lack of a better word) activity.

I have run out of beads (not surprising), so a trip to the craftshop, and fingers crossed that the beads are available, and I will hopefully complete this project within a few days. I'm thinking that it would be nice to have black beads in the band. Hmmm...

Fish Pattern Link

This little fishy is about 1.5 inches long.
Crocheted with a #40 thread and gold metallic sewing thread.

The link was removed due to a virus. I will make the pattern available via the blog soon!

As Promised...Garter Pattern

I've joined esnips so I can make the patterns available. The link for the garter pattern is: http://www.esnips.com/web/MindysTatting
Scroll down for the pattern. If there is a problem, please let me know.
I'll upload the other patterns in the coming days and add the links to the link section as time permits.
